Ortofon Quintet Black S

by barigowan

An absolutely superb cartridge for its price. Nothing comes close, in this range. This one is not even fully run in, in near-mint condition.

£600.00 £800.00

Cartridge is not fully ‘run in’. About 40 hours or so of use. Near-mint condition. Used as a ‘reference/back-up’ – but, as I now have 4 very high-end cartridges(!) – it’s no longer needed. It’s a superb-sounding piece and astonishingly good value. Buyer pays +3.6% levy if Paypal used. The Quintet Black S is graced with a Nude Shibata diamond, considered one of the best stylus profiles available, mounted on a high-performance Sapphire cantilever. Sapphire is one of the best cantilever options that provides an excellent mechanical pulse transfer from the stylus to the coil system. The Quintet Black S, like its predecessor Quintet Black, produces detailed and pure reproduction though-out the spectrum, volume and soundstage. Technical Data Output voltage at 1kHz, 5cm/sec. 0.3mV Frequency response 20-20k Hz +/- 1.5dB Recommended tracking force 2.3grams Internal impedance, DC resistance 5 Ohm Recommended load impedance > 20 Ohm Cartridge body material – ABS/Alu Cartridge weight 9 grams
